Description The oblong white marble top with reeded edge above the conforming frieze with brass string inlay and a central gilt-bronze foliate appliqué and appliqués over the columns. The white marble columns with very fine cast gilt-bronze capitals and bases with marble pilasters in the back with carved gilt-wood capitals and bases flanking a mirror plate on an oblong plinth with brass beading on its top and bottom edge, raised on four acanthus-carved animal paw feet with verde-antique paint. Woods: Rosewood Veneer, Tulip Poplar.

This magnificent table relates to those with straight-front plinths made by Honoré Lannuier about 1810-15 although the large scale of the gilt appliqué suggests that it was made towards the latter date. The projecting plinths above the columns indicate it was not made by Lannuier, however, but possibly another New York-based French cabinetmaker or by his famous competitor, Duncan Phyfe.
